Okay, so maybe they haven’t won any awards but if my taste buds are the judge, these snacks take first place in every category. Movies and food, need I say more? Personally, I cannot watch a movie unless I have a tasty treat on hand and with the Oscars right around the corner, it is the perfect time to try some bomb recipes.
College students are experts on snacks so I had no problem finding new ideas. This is a roundup of snacks from Spoon University chapters across the nation. Most are perfect for cuddling up for a movie night, some can be stuffed into your bag at the theater and others are the perfect addition to your Oscar watch party.
- Homemade Popcorn
Of course popcorn has to be the first on the list. Check out these Siracha-Honey-Sesame, Rosemary Parmesan and dark peanut butter and white chocolate flavors from George Washington University.
